EDITORS’ NOTES

Having built up a solid reputation on the local festival circuit as an act that consistently delivers energy, innovation and showmanship, Afro-rock outfit Ben Dey and the Concrete Lions celebrate the beating artistic heart of modern South Africa with their rich, rhythmic indie pop EP Rise. The five-track release leads off with the chart-topping lead single “Easy Love”—Dey's endearingly raspy falsetto soaring over his own strummed guitar interwoven with the crescendo swell of Ongama Mona's solo electric guitar—and closes with the bracing arm-waving anthem "The Sirens", setting the stage for great things to come for the Cape Town foursome.
